BICYCLE DUTCH

All about cycling in the Netherlands

Cycling and big intersections in the Netherlands

In Dutch cycle infrastructure major intersections were created in different ways in the past.
First we see a major intersection from the 1960s in Utrecht. Two roads with 2×2 lanes and separated cycle paths on all 4 sides meet. Shown is how a cyclist makes a left turn there.

Then we compare it to a major intersection in nearby Houten (in 2008 voted best cycle city of the Netherlands) where a decades younger solution for a major intersection makes a left turn for a cyclist a lot easier, quicker and safer.
